A WOMAN out walking her dogs at Golcar last night was pushed into the canal following an argument.

The attack happened while the local woman was walking along the banks of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal, off Westwood Lane, at about 6.05pm.
One of her two dogs fell into the canal and she had to help it out.
She was then approached by the woman who started arguing with her and pushed her into the canal.
The attacker then ran off.
She is described as white, in her 40s, about 5ft 6in tall and stocky. She had brown hair in a ponytail and had a red blotchy face.
She was wearing a blue T-shirt, black leggings and a baseball cap.
